Andrés Armijo
Becoming a Part of My History
Andrés Armijo presents on his first, recent publication "Becoming a Part of My History: Through Images & Stories of My Ancestors" - People's Photography and Family Research at its Best.
This project stems out of years of genealogical research, oral history interviews and the recovery of family images and artifacts. Vernacular photography, or "people's photography" enlightens a family's past, while oral histories also illuminate photographs. Both aspects of family research are in potential danger of being lost, and it is through this recovery project that Andrés Armijo shares insights, guidance, stories and oral histories about his family for all ranges of audiences. In this presentation, Armijo will share excerpts from select chapters of the book, and the photographs (and moving pictures, or home movies as we know them) that accompany them. Interaction, discussion and questions in this multi-media presentation are encouraged.

This program is free and open to the public
